The Vancouver Police Department, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers, is asking for your help in identifying a theft suspect caught on surveillance.

Over the past few weeks, the Vancouver Police Department has taken several reports of auto prowls in the area of Vancouver Lake.

The suspect is a white male with brown hair and eyes and is of medium build. He was wearing a long sleeved white button up shirt and blue jeans.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony, and you remain anonymous. Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP (4357) or leave a tip online at
